Join us for our second anniversary event at Stillpoint Spaces London!


On Friday 15th March Philippa Perry will be tackling the psychological subject of Why Are Other People So Awful?, followed by an informal Q&A session with the audience. We often think other people, or we think we ourselves, are awful. It’s as if someone has to be, and we might be convinced about it. Why is this, and do we want to do anything about it?


This will be a ticketed evening event from 7pm-9pm (see below).


On Saturday 16th March we will be holding a free open house for all, from 2pm-6pm. This will include a set of short talks on psychology-focused subjects, chance to chat to active members of the Stillpoint Spaces London community, and the second iteration of our innovative public invitation to speed date psychotherapists*. Full schedule TBA.



*SPEED DATING THERAPISTS: short meetings with a selection of the Stillpoint Spaces London talking therapists, to find out how they work and if they might be suited for yourself or a loved one. These aren’t mini therapy sessions, but they are a chance to meet therapists, at no cost, in a less formal environment than usual. Participating therapists include:



HELEN CORDERY | OLIVIER DROILLARD plus more to be confirmed


With short talks by psychotherapists MARIELLE ALBERS, SISSY LYKOU, and JULIE-ANNE EDWARDS, with a fourth speaker TBA.
